Café Lite Sunday 3rd of April

Slightly delayed due to technical issues – but here’s the latest Café Lite

Dear All

We have put together another Cafe Lite service and hope that you enjoy it.  We forgot to do an activity so get your thinking caps on, maybe send a card or a text message to a long lost friend, or ring someone you have spoken to for a long time, pray for a neighbour or friends from other Christian churches – we are all part of God’s family.

We also have a number of folk who have taken part this time.

Here is the link to click on, just one format this time

The Reading:

Acts 2 v 42-end

The Fellowship of the Believers


42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

And here are the songs we have chosen, you might like to play them again after listening to the service:

Let there be love shared among us

There is a Redeemer

Risen by Shawna Edwards

In resurrection tua

(50 young adults from all over the world sing together across the internet

Build your Kingdom here: Rend Collective

Do let us know your thoughts, if anyone would be interested in reading a prayer or take part in the drama or has some music suggestions (next month probably Pentecost) please get in touch.  We have the technology, well Alistair has!

Stay safe and keep well

Love and prayers
